Goldfish memory myth busted

@ 2008/02/18
A 15-year-old South Australian school student has busted the myth that goldfish have a three second memory..... Six days later, he once again placed the beacon in the water and despite not seeing it for almost a week, the fish swam to the beacon in 4.4 seconds, showing they had remembered the association between food and the beacon for at least six days.

The Mythbusters busted that years ago.
